    that should be a nice addition to the others Panther :D

    Fredz77, is that the NZXT sleeved extensions or did you do it yourself?

    NZXT cables are sleeved. Just did not like the pci ex, are short, 10cm. The site says 20 but are not. Outside this are very well finished.

    Love it! I think I'm going to be getting a few of them fans.

    The reason my PSU is that way is because:

    [​IMG]

    Fig. 1) The PSU has holes ALL over it, so more hot air will be pushed into the case than outside the case,
    Fig. 2) The fan filter doesn't align with my fan!

    I'll be getting a HX 750 soon, hopefully that'll line up :laugh:

    @ Scam ah i see now why then yeah the hole is sort of misaligned with mine aswel not to badly though yeah they do sort of need an long PSU to really benefit properly but my typeR-580 only just misses and with an 140mm fan it's good enough

    @ PantherX12 OCZ make some very nice little Copper BGA sinks and you should always replace stock thermal tape with Sekisui 5760 its the best stuff around

    Cheers after some googling seems they don't sell them in the UK :laugh:

    Gona grab some of these instead ( £2.99 for 8)

    Going to put the spare ones on the sides of the stock heatsink, can drop temps up to 8c by sticking a few L.P ram sinks on it :laugh:

    It is such a tiny thing so it's no surprise.

    Yeah AMD really cheaped out on the reference sink for the 5770 whilst it does have a vapour chamber it's just to smalll.

    They could of easily made the heatsink about 40-50% bigger.

    Hell I'm tempted to ruin my warranty cutting up the shroud so I can put something better in there.

    whoa thats some months ago hehe

    i sold it, cause i needed a laptop for the study's , but then that got cancelled due to not enough people attending.

    so i sold the laptop, and got a Q9550 from KieX, and a maximus II formula + the other things you can see in my system specs ;)

    so yeah

    and next week i should get a new case and new monitor :)

    maybe a Raven02, FT02B, or the Phantom

    not sure yet, still have a week to find the right one

    im thinking it should have room for 1 or 2 dual rads, as i wanna get some WC for it sometime in the near future

    or i could get a used case, like a TJ07 or 800D

    I don't particularly think the RV02 will fit two duel rads maybe one tripple underneath or you could get the RV02 with the window and hack it to fit two duel Rads on the side that'd work
